Using the data from our 2022 Salary Guide, we have outlined some of the highest paying jobs in the UK this year.

Across the board of professional job categories, technical skills are in demand, whether that be in technology, finance, legal, tax, marketing, human resources, as companies face more market, organisational, and regulatory complexity.

There are definite signs of upward pressure on salaries caused by competition. As yet, the expected impact of hybrid working in reducing salaries (for non-commuters) has not materialised which is a further sign of it being a jobseeker's market. For attracting talent, there's no doubt money talks, though jobseekers are expecting to hear emphasis on flexible/hybrid working patterns and will tend to prioritise this, certainly when deciding over two like-for-like salary offers.” - David Leithead | COO, Morgan McKinley UK
